Actually this story waited to be written when the second eagle chick would have hatched.

As we know female Tiiu laid the first egg in the nest on April 22 and the next on April 25 or 26. Greater spotted eagles start incubating immediately after the first egg has been laid.

A chick was hatched on June 1:  up to now no chick has been hatched from the second egg. Normally only one eaglet fledges from a greater spotted eagle nest.

But let us see how life in the eagle nest develops: tomorrow the eagle chick will be one week old.
